Remember, before making a decision to invest in Smartsave you should read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) in full.
Temporary residents (holding a temporary visa under the Migration Act 1958 other than a retirement visa Subclass 405 or 410)
If you are a temporary resident and you permanently depart Australia or no longer hold a visa, we are obliged to transfer your unclaimed super to the ATO after six months of your departure or cessation of your visa (as notified by the ATO).
Irrespective of whether you later return to Australia or remain overseas, you can apply to the ATO for release of your super. Transferred super benefits can be claimed via the ATO’s website at www.ato.gov.au.
On transfer of your super benefit to the ATO, you will cease to be a member of the Fund. In this case, we are not required to provide you with an Exit Statement or any other exit disclosure due to relief provided by ASIC.
If you become an Australian or New Zealand citizen or permanent resident, the obligation to transfer your super benefit to the ATO does not apply and you can continue to be a member of the Fund.
Note: This section does not apply to temporary residents, as defined in the title of this section, who satisfied a condition of release before 1 April 2009. For information on the rules for accessing super applying to these members, please speak to your adviser.
